I've been shooting 4x5 b&w for about 4 years now. About two weeks ago I was in Tom Till's gallery in Moab, UT and was amazed at some of his color prints, so I got to thinking about giving color a try. I was thinking about buying a new Fuji Quickload film holder and a sinlge box of Velvia quickloads to start things off. The reason I'm going with the quickloads is I only have 4 film holders, and I like to keep those stocked with Tri-X.
Here's some questions:
1. Is this a good way to begin?
2. What would be the best film to start with? Velvia? Provia?
3. About how much do labs charge for processing 4x5 transparency film?
